A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Centre Manager to join the team at Smart Works Edinburgh.

The role is integral to the success of Smart Works and therefore requires a self-starting and proactive approach, excellent organisational skills and the ability to take sole responsibility for all aspects of the operational and day to day management of the Edinburgh centre.

There will be significant interaction with a diverse group including clients, referral partners (for example Job Centre Plus and Work Programme Providers). You will also be working with our corporate and retail partners, and our dedicated team of skilled volunteers, as well as have a responsibility for recruiting and managing teams.

A highly organised and positive individual, you will be passionate about empowering women to thrive in work and life. You will be a strong communicator, both verbally and in writing, be able to multi-task, think on your feet and bring a determination to meet our aim of helping as many women as we can back into work. You will be confident in using IT to manage operations and produce reports.

Overall you would relish the opportunity of working in a start-up charity and all the challenges that it will entail. The role would be based in Edinburgh City Centre, and it is anticipated that there will be occasional evening and weekend work.

Smart Works Edinburgh is part of Smart Works Charity, and there will be some travel to London and liaison with the HQ team to support on induction, training and participation in regular meetings, phone calls and conferences with other Smart Works centres across the UK.

We promote equality, diversity and inclusion in our workplace and make recruitment decisions by matching the charity’s needs with the skills and experience of candidates. We are keen to encourage a diverse range of perspectives, skills and experience within our charity. We actively encourage application from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates and disabled candidates.

This job description is subject to amendment from time to time within the conditions of employment as per the needs of Smart Works Edinburgh. All post holders are expected to support Smart Works Edinburgh vision, aims and objectives and embrace its ethos of helping women gain employment.
